  1. Nancy Loo leaving WGN Chicago for a west-coast based reporter position with WGN America's new newscast https://www.instagram.com/p/CADN1GLAe_p/?igshid=16ztm8o9z6j1m
  2. Glad to see WGN is promoting from within, especially when you're taking over for a long time anchor like Steve Sanders.
  3. https://www.wtvr.com/news/local-news/tom-patton-joins-cbs-6-this-morning Glad to see WTVR promoting from within instead of trying to go with an outside hire. He had filled in for Nikki-Dee in the past when she was on maternity leave.
  4. https://www.wtvr.com/news/local-news/nikki-dee-says-goodbye-to-richmond Meteorologist Nikki-Dee Ray will leave WTVR and take over the morning weather spot over at WTVF, her replacement will be announced on Monday morning.
  5. Rest in peace, Buck. He also spent a few years reporting across town at WJLA after leaving WUSA.
  6. I figured this would happen, WTVR will launch a 4pm newscast in September to replace Steve Harvey. This newscast will compete against WWBT's longtime 4pm newscast, which recently expanded to an hour earlier this year. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/8/9/adding-more-news-in-richmond
  7. All of the DC-area stations feature traffic reporters who will also work as anchors/reporters, however when the main traffic reporter is out, typically a co-anchor will do traffic (except at WRC, they usually have Jack Taylor from WTOP fill in)
  8. With WWBT getting Kelly Clarkson and Tamron Hall, I wonder what WTVR will be doing with the 4pm slot which is/was Steve's spot? They currently air Ellen at 3 and it doesn't look like WTVR is giving it up. My only predictions would be a 4pm newscast to compete with WWBT or perhaps they snag Rachel Ray from WRIC who only clears the show overnight?
  9. How long was that thread around? It was my first memory of TVNT
  10. We get the local feed here, but I had a free trial of Fubo TV and they had the national version. My only complaint about the AccuWeather Channel is that they do little to no coverage of hurricanes.
  11. After an absence of four years, The Weather Channel is back on Verizon FIOS channel 611. It had been replaced back in 2015 by The AccuWeather Channel, which will remain on channel 119 SD/619 HD https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/wea...ns-1203247279/
  12. I think NBA TV usually goes with local coverage. I know NHL Network and MLB Network typically pick up a local affiliate for the Stanley Cup or World Series parades, so I'm assuming NBA TV will as well.
  13. http://www.fox5dc.com/about-us/fox-5-staff/angie-goff-joins-fox-5-dc In an announcement that surprises no one, Angie Goff is named co-anchor of WTTG's new 4pm newscast slated to launch after the Women's World Cup. I remember Scott Jones saying shortly after she left WRC that she'd be going there and once the 4pm newscast was announced, along with the hiring of Blake McCoy, it all made sense.
  14. WUSA shifts meteorologists effective today. Howard Bernstein will return to the weekday morning shows, shifting Miri Marshall to weekend mornings and Melissa Nord to weekend evenings. Nord and Marshall will split duties during the noon show during the week. Topper Shutt will retain his longtime chief meteorologist position.
  15. WRAL names Mike Maze as their new chief meteorologist https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article230502839.html?fbclid=IwAR0AMxmJ7400gDlffQCWWOSSHBGu-_dOpmftevb9WlTjR-rexmPTa6wSEpk
